2 X Two Women

November 3, 2009

Over the last few days I happened to watch two movies with one thing in common- the unforgettable Sophia Loren – ‘The Sign of Venus’ (Il segno di Venere) and ‘Ciocara‘.  With ‘Ciocara’ I had a different image of Cesira in mind from Alberto Moravia’s book. In ‘The Sign of Venus’ Franca Valeri’s Cesira was also deeply moving. The plots in both movies were centered around the fate of Two Women, however in completely different contexts. No happy-end in either. Just, as sometimes in life.
